Ten Things ...

Ten things to do when you can't log on:

1. Make a phone call - remind people that you still have a voice.

2. Pick up a book before you forget that words can appear in a static form that doesn't require a power cable.

3. Nip to the pub and stare at people in 3D for a change.

4. Get someone to lend you a pencil and some paper and see if you can remember that esoteric art that some people still call "writing".

5. Search for the monster that's eating your socks (okay, so that may only be relevant to me).

6. Turn on the TV ... and remind yourself why you don't normally do that so much nowadays.

7. Do your Christmas cards ... after all, who knows when you'll next get the chance?

8. Cook and freeze some meals so you'll be able to feed yourself faster when you are able to log on.

9. Find out what it's like to go to sleep when it's still p.m. rather than a.m..

10. Prepare your next blog post suggesting ten things to do when you can't log on.

And a quick one from the Jack Dee Show: "A man is like a deck of cards: you need a heart to love him, a diamond to marry him, a club to smash his head in and a spade to bury the bastard".

1. What's a phone?
2. What's a book?
3. Where's the pub?
4. What's a pencil?
5. Ok, I still know what socks are, and what they're for
6. They turn off???
7. Why would I do that in March? What do you mean, it's September? Already?
8. Beer doesn't freeze well.
9. What's sleep?

Heh. You forgot field 25 IMs from people who can't get onto the site. Here was a typical conversation:

Other Person: Can you get into A F F?
Me: No, the site is down.
Other Person: Well, what happened?
Me: I have no idea. Call them and ask.
Other Person: I tried, I got a busy signal.
Me: Well, I guess lots of people are calling to find out what went on.
Other Person: Well, what am I supposed to do?
Me: Visit the other 99.999% of the web? Here, try these sites...

I'm glad I have a wide array of bookmarks to sites on various subjects that kept everyone happy.

Al ... Okay, okay, you win!

MissAnnThrope ... Want to pass me some interesting bookmarks against the next time?

Papy ... You forget an important point: I am male and two profiles would confuse me!

Well, after having endured 4 ( or is it 5??) enforced days off line, courtesy of our wonderful Spanish telephone company, I can think of a LOT more comments to add. Funny how they all seem to start with an "F" tho LOL.

and Jack Dee...is the best LOL. Wish we got to see more of him over here.

Waggy ... I agree they're always options and I appreciate that they have the singular virtue of making us feel better (catharsis I believe it's called). However, it seems to me that we can all do that one on automatic pilot so I was trying to suggest alternatives that might be a little more constructive

Dizzy ...Welcome back online And if Spanish telecommunications providers are getting you down, well, you can always move back over here
